If you’ve been living under a rock or steadfastly avoiding any modicum of sports and city news in the last few days, you know that New Jerseyan rock hero Bon Jovi is a part of a major ownership group that has the inside track on bringing the Buffalo Bills to Toronto on a permanent basis.
As a result, we figure now is as good a time as any to start following other exciting Bon Jovi antics–and he has delivered. Immediately. Last night at the Winter Whites Gala at Kensington Palace, Bon Jovi teamed up with America’s sweetheart Taylor Swift and Prince William to perform a rousing rendition of “Livin’ On a Prayer.” The results were similar to any party or karaoke bar where most people have had more than two drinks and someone belts out the first “we gotta hooooold on,” except black ties, celebrities, and a few dozen millionaires in the building make it slightly more exciting.
